Give Karole A “Hand”

Hi, my name is Karole MacFarlane and I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a hereditary disease that progressively destroys motor neurons. These nerve cells reside in the brainstem and spinal cord controlling essential skeletal muscle activity. Things such as speaking, walking, breathing and swallowing are affected. This leads to muscle weakness and atrophy. Motor neurons control movement in the arms, legs, chest, face, throat and tongue. When there are disruptions in the signal between motor neurons and muscles, the muscles gradually weaken, begin wasting away and develop twitching called fasciculations. I have had it since birth and am 50 plus years old! I live a really full life with my wonderful husband’s and daughter’s laughter and constant support.
